A cigarette packet ??? Lucky you never said a Mars bar as their getting smaller every day...

I need one, looks well Rod. The decking the hull is sat on gives the scale away nicely. Any chance of a pic with a 12" ruler next to it (or a cigarette packet, that's what I use😂) Cheers Wayne

The finished hull looks great. Can't wait to see the top moulding sat on top of it 😀 Still living in hope that I may be able to get one of these to fit out and use. Best wishes, Dave W 😊

A hull at last well done. Whats the sizes of the hull ? An Image give,s away no size

Should be no problem. The first cast is always a bit fraught, but with the right preparation the results soon pay for themselves. Dave

Hi Dave Your right there I intend to slope the sides ever so slightly with clay attached to the sides of the balsa wood as this will enable easier seperation of the mould Thanks for your continued interest in the project Looking forward to putting it all together eventually Cheers

Hi The mould is looking good. Are the open cockpit sides sloping up from the floor to the top? I know you intend to use silicon and if this can be freed from the plaster support then removal should be OK. However if you can't I suspect removing the rear cockpit area may be difficult. Looking forward to seeing how you progress Dave

Looks great Rod !

Removed first hull from mould Had a few problems with the release but all OK now so onwards and upwards !! Laid profile for top deck now and starting the clay shaping Should be a bit easier than the hull and hope to have this ready for moulding shortly I intend to cover it with silicone first to get a good impression and back it up for strength with fibreglass strengthened casting plaster I will then lay the fibreglass in the mould and gradually build it up for the finished article Well that's the theory at this stage lol Will keep in touch with progress but going well and I am happy with the results so far

Thanks for the info We are well on the way to sorting it out now thanks The guy that did the original take from the mould used gell coat which I didn't want as it chips too easy on the river rocks and I don't think he used the correct release agent either However all good now and should have a new one off shortly I have commenced the top half now and will use a silicone mould strengthened with fibreglass and plaster over the back of it to hold in place I have done this before and should have done again on the original mould Slow learner aye !! Lol It is going to look just fine when it is all finished Will post a photo of it when the next hull comes off Cheers

So If things are still not going well It may be better to take the moulding you have and work from that. Chuck all the moulding away . Flat board screw the hull down on the edges. Filler and sanding and keep going til your happy with it then finer and finer sandpaper then wet and dry and finished off with G3 polish then wax and pva then make the mould. Bearing in mind any blemishes in the mould will be in EVERY moulding taken.. Making the mould is not as hard as you think.

Oh dear Rod. Sorry to hear of the problems with using a "so called expert"... I understand the lack of control when you put all your hard work in someone elses hands and you get let down. Best of luck with the Mk 2. Look forward to seeing a "Pukka" job of a hull photgraphed for all to see very soon. Best wishes mate, Dave W

Sorry to hear of your problems Rod, I do find that a lot of "professionals" are that in name only, most would struggle with fastening your shoelaces! On the rare occasion though you do find the odd good one. Cheers Wayne
